Significance of Shani And Is Saturn Really Evil? What’s Beyond This Myth?

Shani, or Saturn, is a planet in astrology that is widely misunderstood and misrepresented. This slow-moving planet, the son of Lord Surya and Goddess Chhaya, is often considered malefic. Saturn is frequently portrayed as a source of obstacles, delays, and hardships, slowing down progress in one's life. 

But is this reputation deserved? Is Saturn truly as malefic as it is commonly believed to be?

In the Puranas and stories of Vedic astrology, the Sun always disregarded his child Shani and humiliated him and goddess Chhaya (Shani's mother) because Goddess Chhaya was the replica that Goddess Sanjana, the first wife of lord Surya, created in place of her. So, Shani Dev never got the respect of any of the lords and was always seen as dark and melancholic. Still, at the same time, Shani Dev has enormous and ultimate powers given to him by different deities, including Lord Shiva himself. 

Saturn is not negative; it’s the lord of justice and fairness. He always gives results according to the person's Karma, never giving less or more than required. The Mool Mantra of Saturn is that results are just delayed, not denied, and when you get them, they will be better and long-lasting. Though Shani puts blockages and obstructions in work, all he demands is the individual's sheer will, dedication, and hard work. 

He signifies patience in a person’s life. He gives the result to the person by making him go through all the life experiences he needs. Shani Dev makes a person learn how to stand on their own feet. Another interesting fact about Shani Dev is that he gives prosperity and high post to a person but with humility and responsibility towards others. 

Saturn or Shani Dev is the major Karak of the profession in an individual’s life as he is the lord of the 10th house in Kaal Purush Kundali. So, a person’s career’s longevity and success depend upon Saturn. In the human body, Shani Dev represents bones, legs, teeth, and the nervous system. In Ayurveda, Shani Dev regulates the Vatta element of the body. 

Malefic Effects of Shani or Saturn

The negative influence of an unfavorably placed Saturn or Shani in one's astrological chart can lead to a plethora of obstacles and setbacks in life. The detrimental effects of this planetary placement are well-documented in astrology. However, a comprehensive analysis of one's Kundli or horoscope can provide a more nuanced understanding of the specific impacts of Saturn in the individual's life. Below are some of Shani's negative effects. 

  • Shani Dev, or Saturn, is considered the Karak of a profession that substantially impacts one's career and profession. As per astrologers, an afflicted Saturn in one's birth chart, positioned in a detrimental sign or weakened state, such as retrograde or combust, can cause hindrances in career advancement and growth.

  • When Saturn is not in the best position for a native, their journey in career or new ventures can become laden with obstacles and blockages. As the slowest planet in Navagraha, Saturn's pace can cause delays and bring slow growth to both personal and professional aspects of life. The native may find themselves struggling to make progress, with success seeming to slip out of reach. However, perseverance and patience can eventually help them overcome these challenges.

  • The malevolent effects of Shani Dosh afflict the natives, causing a persistent sense of weariness and laziness. These individuals lack the zeal and passion for pursuing their goals, whether in their careers or personal life. Their lack of commitment and enthusiasm results in them falling short of their objectives, causing setbacks and financial instability. Though aware of their responsibilities, their perpetual inertia and resistance to hard work impede their progress, causing them to miss out on opportunities and experience discontent and disillusionment.

  • Saturn's negative influence can trigger overconfidence in individuals, making them believe that all challenges are a cakewalk. However, they struggle to deliver when reality hits, leading to unfavorable outcomes. 

  • An unfavorable positioning of Saturn in an individual's natal chart can result in a series of obstacles. These obstacles may manifest in the form of impatience, leading to the tendency to abandon tasks prematurely.

  • Those with a weak Saturn placement are prone to distraction and quickly abandon projects that do not yield immediate results. Such individuals may be unaware that Rome wasn't built in a day. Hard work, patience, and perseverance are essential qualities required for progress, but individuals with a weak Saturn may struggle to develop these traits. They often take on multiple tasks simultaneously, leading to a lack of focus and inevitable failure.

  • When Saturn is poorly placed in a person's horoscope, they may exhibit egocentric tendencies and lack humility. This celestial body can instill a materialistic and self-centered approach. However, Saturn's influence demands that success be achieved with a sense of humility and a commitment to serving others. As a result, those with a poorly positioned Saturn may struggle to attain financial prosperity unless they prioritize exercising humbleness and a sense of responsibility towards their subordinates, society, and those under their authority.

  • Because of its distance from the Sun, Saturn receives little warmth, making it a cold and aloof planet. Astrologically, individuals with unfavorable Saturn placement may exhibit similar tendencies of being reserved and preferring solitude over socializing, making them appear reserved to others.

  • Adverse effects of Shani can manifest in the form of extramarital affairs, dishonesty, and deception, which can impact the native's personal and professional life. Such negative influences may cause the native to indulge in deceitful behaviors and ideas that can lead to the betrayal of people in their surroundings.
